Film Clips- Christmas In Connecticut
Christmas In Connecticut
This clip is taken from the 1945 film Christmas in Connecticut. The plot is that a food writer - the actress Barbara Stanwyck who opens the door in our clip - who has lied about being the perfect housewife must try to cover her deception when her boss and a returning war hero - played by Dennis Morgan invite themselves to her home for a traditional family Christmas. The baby has been left to be looked after by the housekeeper whilst its parent goes off to work. Barbara Stanwyck has to pretend it is hers to placate her boss. The scene is still funny but how the passage of time has added a completely new and unintended slant - now that no man is allowed to go near a baby for fear that he is a child molester.
